Theme:Preparation, Sending



Lord, thy Word abideth,
And our footsteps guideth;
Who its truth believeth
Joy receiveth.
When our foes are near us,
Then thy Word doth cheer us;
Word of consolation
And salvation.

When the storms are o'er us,
And dark clouds before us,
Then its light directeth
And protecteth.
Who can tell the pleasure,
Who recount the treasure,
Of thy Word which liveth,
And abideth.

Word of mercy, giving
Succor to the living;
Thy word comfort supplying,
To the dying.
O that we discerning
Its most holy learning
Lord, may love and fear thee,
And be near thee.
